St. Patrick's Day inspired Awesome Old Song of the Week: "Tubthumping" by Chumbawamba

Ok, so Chumbawamba is English, not Irish.  But "Tubthumping" is about drinking, and they sing "Danny Boy" in the chorus.  That's good enough for me, especially when you consider that most of the people out there celebrating St. Paddy's day aren't Irish either.

I feel like Chumbawamba mostly gets mocked these days for their funny name and just having the one hit.  That may be true, but it shouldn't take away from the song's merit; it was huge in 1997, and still made me happy just now when I played the video.
